A little while back I painted up some Rebel Miniatures Corporate Infantry which I was quite pleased with. Continuing the theme are these fellows from Ground Zero Games.
As anyone vaguely paying attention to my likes and dislikes, I’m a big fan of ‘character’ models so these miniatures fit the bill very nicely indeed.
First up are SG15-J02 “Japanese infantry bare headed/headband“. All unique minis making a really nice 8 man squad.
Next we have SG15-J21 “Japanese Tech Ninja Special Forces” – these come in a pack of 8 miniatures with 4 poses. At the same time I ordered a few packs of Jon’s ‘heads’ and it made sense to give half this pack the be-heading treatment. It would after all tie them in better with the infantry above.
First off the ‘heads’ are brilliant. Great selection and well defined (if a little large in some cases). As far as using them with the Ninja here I’m more than pleased with the overall results. They have since seen more action with some Clear Horizon miniatures, again to add more variety to a unit.
One minor quibble! And that’s scale – which may come as a surprise to some as I am quite anti-scale police. Pic below shows that the Infantry are quite a bit smaller than their Ninja counterparts. Indeed almost closer in scale to the under-scale MTU Trooper (Prototype) from
That said we can assume that the Ninja are drawn from a more robust gene pool (or genetically enhanced) and can easily rationalise the scale difference thus. So all good. (As an aside, I’m guessing the difference is historical with the Infantry being produce way back when 15mm was 15mm rather than nearer 18mm today – Jon can confirm if he stumbles across this post. That and/or a different sculptor).
